Dr papa

Yesterday was a baking day, baked a honeycomb cake and a lemon butter cake. I thought the lemon butter cake could do with more lemon.

Snacking on nuts while watching World Cup. Guess who wants to eat nuts too?

Why are you surprised that I’m a glutton, I am your daughter after all!

I have been contemplating whether to get the Aldi kitchen set for Saitaoha especially since she loves baking so much. This set has diner seats at the back, so fun for playing masak masak, can pretend to have customers and all. There was only one set left when we went to Aldi tonight, I took that as a sign and bought it! Saitaoha was so happy, she said ‘yeah!!bake cake!’

Doggie has a tear and is ‘sick sick’.

Can you fix it Dr Papa?

Can you also fix polar bear while you’re at it?

And also white xiuxiu and pink xiuxiu?

Dr papa is very busy!

Doggie is cured! Check out Saitaomei photo bombing at the back πŸ˜†.

New phone

Our Sunday oyakodon lunch. I was reminded of Goldilocks and the three bears when I took this photo. Obviously the size of my bowl was ‘just right’. Saitaoha finished her bowl too, can make this for her in the future.

Standard loh bak lunch bento. I asked R whether he’s sick of pork belly, he said he can never get sick of pork belly. Ah Ma is always nagging me about skipping meals or being the last to eat my own cooking. The truth is by the time I’m done cooking, prepping bentos, washing up and feeding the kid, I don’t feel like eating my own cooking anymore!

It is good that she likes brushing her teeth. I’m worried about her open bite which is a really of her dummy addiction. I want to wean her off her dummy but her papa said to give her a little more time. I think it’s because our friend told us a horror story about how her child cried for three months when she weaned him off cold turkey πŸ˜“.

This is my first post written on my new iPhone! I’m so excited and pleased with it. All my backups worked and my old photos,apps and contacts are alive in my new phone. I’m so bad with tech stuff I thought I would stuff it up, but luckily R pretty much did it for me.

Can’t wait to try out the camera on the kids tomorrow 😍😍😍. I’m usually not excited about tech gadgets but there’s something about this phone being my Mother’s Day gift that gives me a warm and fuzzy glow inside.

I need a medic

Hello mummy, you sick is it? Come come Dr Saitaomei check you out.

Err Dr Saitaomei, I don’t think you’re supposed to eat your stethoscope.

Just checking it’s working mummy.

Meanwhile Saitaoha is having the best time now that her Gung Gung Mah Mah are back. Gung gung has been fetching us to his house by car everyday because it’s been raining cats and dogs. This is despite his house literally being a stone’s throw away πŸ˜….

This afternoon it stopped raining so I decided we would walk over. Saitaoha walked out of our door, saw the empty driveway and said ‘where’s Gung Gung?’ So spoilt this kid!

η™½θœζ±€οΌŒstir fried sweet potato leaves, salted egg yolk chicken and air fried chicken wings for dinner. I miss having dinner with my parents, it was nice.

I feel my fever creeping back up so have downed some Panadol. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a fever, I couldn’t understand why I felt so hot yet so cold last night with my heater on. Perth is so wet and chilly this week, @Tspellstrouble, good week to be away!

I’m so lucky that I only fell ill when my parents were back, maybe my body was holding up till then haha. I have a scheduled lunch date with my ex work besties this Sat but I might have to give it a miss if I’m not well then 😭. Then again, it’s kinda shocking that I will be back at work in three weeks, sigh I will miss the kids. I’m looking forward to working, but I’m not looking forward to my workplace, does that make sense?

Oh well, I’ll try to make the most of the next few weeks. I need to get back to exercising, ah Ma and I both want to but we don’t know how we will find the time sigh πŸ˜”.

Picnic

Saitaoha, is that a nugget in your hands?

Too late mummy. Om nom nom.

It’s finger lickin’ good!

We had a long overdue catch-up with my friends. I felt really bad because they’ve been trying to schedule a catch-up with me for maybe half a year?! In the end they got so desperate they said ‘can we drop by your house to pass you presents for Saitaomei before it’s too late?’ They were worried the clothes they bought for Saitaomei would be too small for her by the time they got to see her πŸ˜…. So I suggested a picnic by the park so that Saitaoha gets to run around and go to the playground.

First time eating spam onigiri made by my friend’s Japanese wife, it was yummy!

Cousins reunite! She really misses her koko and jeje, keeps talking about them.

My Saitaoha is a fiesty one, not afraid of the bigger boisterous boys at the playground at all! There was this kid that yelled at her and Tristan saying ‘you can’t play here!! It’s for big kids!!! Not small kids!!’ She stared at him and chattered to him in her baby talk, refused to move or go away haha.

Made beef brisket noodles for R’s lunch when he returned from work.

Then we had a family dinner to celebrate Mother’s Day, ah pa paid for dinner saying ‘all my daughters are mummies’. Sigh I wish he wouldn’t keep paying for our meals, he’s retired and not earning an income leh, but ah pa is generous and stubborn like that.

Despite my best efforts, both kids are refusing to sleep early tonight. Sigh, and Saitaoha is down with a cough too, I only hope it’s a slight one and she recovers quickly. The best Mother’s Day gift would be my kids staying happy and healthy throughout the year πŸ™πŸ».

Good things come to those who wait

Sent this photo to R yesterday. He is addicted to Ali Express and receives a parcel every other day.

Today’s photo with the caption ‘another day another Ali Express package’πŸ˜…. Both times he replied ‘my two favourite things’.

Ah Ma sent me this photo of gung gung and Saitaoha gardening. They bought her new gloves!

She’s becoming quite the little gardener hehe.

Baked an asparagus, mushroom and bacon quiche. I also did the laundry, changed the bed sheets, had adequate pumping sessions and had dinner ready today, such a sense of accomplishment haha. Little wins, little wins.

But then we discovered that I stuffed up some paperwork and now we have to redo it again! Grrrr… this is really the year to hone my patience, somehow nothing goes smoothly and we have to jump through hoops to get anywhere. The good news is I’m getting much better at dealing with these issues now and it doesn’t stress me out as much. It’s annoying but just get it done, no point stressing or whining. But I can’t wait till we are finally done and can celebrate! Here’s hoping good news is not too far away *fingers crossed*

My girls

This little girl is not so little anymore. She replies to my instructions with a cheery ‘ok mummy!’. She will emphasise her requests with a ‘please!’ ‘Please mummy, chock-late please!!’ πŸ˜… It makes it quite difficult to say no. She’s not so into milk anymore but is drinking more water which is great. After her snacks and food, she will grab her water bottle and help herself.

She’s quite OCD about the placement of things. She will take off her shoes and socks and line them up neatly on the floor (she even does it for our shoes haha). She stuffs her socks into her shoes just like how her papa does.

Saitaoha is no dainty little flower though, she’s boisterous, cheeky and funny. She loves the new beanbag that we got for the house and launches herself like a rocket into it.

This little one has the loveliest smiles first thing in the morning.

I love kissing her boing boing cheeks.

Ah Ma put her in the high chair, soon she’ll be ready for solids. I hope this means she sleeps longer at night. Part of me wishes she could stay a baby forever. I will miss my koala.

Beansprout noodles bento, R says he could eat this everyday.

Braised beef shank with tau kee, I thought with two kids, that would be the end of my favourite type of slow cooking. But hooray for instant pot, this took 20 minutes and it was so tender and flavourful. I’ve reserved all the master stock and beef brisket for R’s fav beef brisket noodles for the weekend.

A good day today.

School holidays

I wish WordPress had stickers like Dayre because I need a confetti throwing πŸŽ‰ cat right now, Saitaoha has recovered! Her appetite is back to normal and all errr bodily functions are back to normal too. Hooray!

It’s school holidays so my mum is looking after LG during the day. It’s great for Saitaoha because she loves her jeje’s company. Here they are drawing together.

My sister baked a quiche which I had for brunch with a kopi, it had asparagus, onions and bacon, very delicious.

In return I made a lasagna which the kids and my parents will be having for lunch tomorrow.

Oh hai, anyone miss me? This one is getting demanding, insists on being carried and walked around, Mah Mah’s arms are breaking.

Hehe so cute together. I’m hoping to bring the kids to the playground tomorrow, all kids invited, Tspellstrouble want to come ?

Simple dinner tonight of ah Ma’s veg tomyum soup, honey pork with brocolli, η•ͺθŒ„η‚’θ›‹.

Hope the kid sleeps early tonight!
